i'm not sure about perry, but some beer yeasts can throw quite a bit of sulphur. it should go away after a week or 2 of conditioning

Usually it will go away on its own. If not, you can use Copper Sulfate to greatly reduce this off flavor.

Yes, but you are going to want to be very careful with that stuff if you decide to use it.
